RIGA, Latvia (AP) — Latvian police say the number of dead from a supermarket roof collapse has risen to 45.

Spokesman Toms Sadovskisk says officials expect the death toll at the sprawling Maxima supermarket in Riga to rise further.

He said Friday the number of injured remains at 35 and that nine of the dead are still unidentified.

Rescue workers were keeping up their round-the-clock search for possible survivors Friday. They were periodically turning off all equipment and asking relatives of missing people to call so they could hear ringing cellphones in the rubble.
